To ride the wave of some of the next decade's fastest-growing careers, look no further than your computer. Through the year 2016, jobs for network systems and data communications analysts will increase 53.4%.
What is a network? It's a group of computers or devices connected in such a way that they... are able to communicate with each other securely and instantaneously. With nearly every business in the global economy depending on information systems, job prospects for trained technology professionals are excellent in both the public and private sectors.
Network systems professionals have two kinds of skills: Complex technology and business acumen. To implement and enhance complex networks, they use technological tools and processes used by a company or other group of users to share, store and make sense of data and other information. The technology must be tailored to fit the network's unique needs and be 100% secure.
Many schools offer 2- and 4-year degree programs in Network Administration, Network Architecture, or Network Technology. The curriculum will cover standard information technology and computer science courses, such as operating systems, database concepts, and object-oriented programming, with an emphasis on their real-world application in business, government, and social systems.
Specializing in networks is a valuable asset in our interconnected world. Network specialists should be able to find work easily with a company or as a consultant, and usually fetch a high salary for their skills.
